All our slates are extracted and selected from the best quarries in Galicia and Castile and Leon (Spain), where the biggest reserves of tectonic natural slate in the world are to be found.

Natural Beauty

CUPA PIZARRAS has, since 1892, had the privilege of offering the world slates from a unique land, the result of thousands of years of work by nature itself.


Characterised by its natural colour and individual texture, natural slate is a material that can enhance the value and beauty of any property.


Each slate is handcrafted by our skilled “crafstmen”, with no additional treatment required.


Noble and natural. Natural slate is one of the most versatile materials used for the architectural design and decoration. Our slate is timeless and easily adaptable to any project idea.

A unique setting

Our head office is located in the heart of the Valdeorras district in Galicia, northern Spain, in an extraordinarily beautiful place surrounded by mineral-rich mountains and with a strong mining tradition from time immemorial.

An unmatchable product

Our slates are timeless and adapt easily to any project, conferring an unmistakable personality once in place as roofing or cladding.

Textures with history

Slate produced in Cupa Pizarras represents the beauty of the natural surroundings. Its texture tells a story in each piece, the forces which created it and the minerals in which it’s made up of. These one-of-a-kind textures have inspired architects worldwide to create original projects where the slate shines out with its own light.

Natural shine

Slate is pure and natural; it has an elegant and distinguished appearance. It’s dark yet it reflects light in an unique way giving life and a different personality to any surface.

Historic monuments

At CUPA PIZARRAS we are proud that our slates have been chosen to renovate the world’s most important monuments. Our wide selection of slate allows restorers to maintain the original appearance and personality of each country’s historic heritage.
